Personally I would’ve held out for cake.
Summon Bigger Fish.
Wait, sorry, wrong webcomic.
HOLY COW!! I need to go read Darth and Droids again! Thanks for reminding me. XD
not related, but,
howsabout we summon the BALROG OF MORGOTH!!!
as opposed to less goth or greater goth
It might be a mistake on the nun’s part to call on a god who provides help when it is most needed. Under the circumstances, i mean.
She said Gigundus “helps us when we need it most”. If by “us” she means her order, then I’d say she’s fine.
Actually, she said he *appears* to help them when they need it most. It’s quite possible that he’s faking it ;-P.
“I CAN BREAK THESE CUFFS.”
“You can’t break those cuffs.”
‘Greater Instant Victory Plus Ale’????
I want that spell!
no, you only think you can, you think you can, you think you can…
i love how he dosent evan question the whole “see life forces” thing. he’s just like: “oh ok, cool that helps”
Sure, why not. He’s already seen the guy use Souls to make guided arrows, what’s a little seeing the aura among friends?
Dang you Moe Lane, you stole my joke!!!!
It’s like these are new players to a system they’re familiar with, but not deeply.
Actually, Bandit was playing her Char just right. Thieves have no use for heavy armor, and a heavy mace, while nice for a Meatshield, is way too heavy vs. it’s value in gold to bother snagging.
Yepp, unless it is either of rare material (i.e Mithril, adamantium etc.), an artifact or you know someone who would pay a lot of money for them! :)
He lives in a world with flying cities. I think “I can see living auras” warrants about as much skepticism as “I have three gold medals from high school swim meets.” I.E., a significant amount if and only if he uses it for a pickup line.
It’d be funny if with all the straining Frigg’s bra suddenly snapped/ripped instead of the shackles.
Sorry Byron, no unbeatable army. Now can you break it or not?
â€œSummon vengeful spiritsâ€ would be good right about now.
Frigg’s got one big family.
“Summon Illusionary Spirits” would work just as well, if he shows the Sisterhood of The Traveling Poleaxe a vision of Giguzunder telling them to quit they trippin’. Or, y’know, just call him on the All-Seeing Eye Phone, since they’re actually working for the same boss-man as the Sisters.
I can’t help but love Bandit’s butt as she’s digging in the box. Also super lol at ” Summon Unbeatable Army”.
Wait a minute…Gravies a Cleric fer goshsakes. Where’s his Summon Monster 1-5? Not quite an unbeatable army, but good for a distraction if nothing else. 4 or 5 D4 worth of Celestial Dogs can be a nice little hunting party.
He’s no cleric. He’s a mystic.
All the soul and life powaz, none of the other stuff. Except for archery.
But hey, heat-seeking arrows. Now if he could put that to use on weapons of a…greater scale…
Ah, Summon Monster and the clunky Hit Die system â€“ here’s another thing I don’t miss about the old D&D. ;) Besides, they rather seem to be 4th than 3rd edition, so assuming he’s a shaman, the only thing he would summon is the occasional nature spirit or his ghost animal. Whatever he is, he is obviously a primal class character. But he has no healing powers (as far as we know), so maybe he is something freakish, like a seeker, or something. That would explain the arrow thing too. Assuming this would be D&D, of course. ;)
He is the first true seeker in a thousand years!
Ain’t gonna get what he’s after ’til the day he dies.
“in the name of gigundus, he who appears to help us, but really has a secret double-agenda.”
I have to admit, in Shadowrun I’m rather fond of the spells “orgasm” and “orgy (multi-target version)” for crowd-control. The AoE is nice, and even though you can’t distinguish between friend and foe, at least your allies won’t hate you if they get caught in the crossfire.
Summon Jehovah’s witness would probably be pretty effective.
“You get it!”
“No, you get it.”
“I’m not opening that door.”
“Everybody be quiet!”
“Quick, out the back.”
“What about her?”
“Just leave her here. A fate far worse than death awaits her.”
No, G@tor, that’s the Mormons. (My husband grew up in the Witnesses, they’re not the monsters some folks make ‘em out to be. The Mormons, on the other hand, are downright obnoxious, at least in this town.)
Liked the “summon unbeatable army” thing. As well as the alt text. The reply to that ought to be, “Naw, not until I get 9th level spells.”
Wull, with no undefeatable army, we may actually get to see Byron have to berserk!
I can hardly wait… *yawn*
Wait…what? Byron? Berserk? As in…he is a berserker?? C’mon, Chollie, quit yankin’ my chain. (/sarcasm)
I already waited four stips ago for that to happen… ;Ãž
I really have no idea why you think ‘Byron-the-passive-aggressive’ would go Berserk.
it’s not like his name merits it; and thus should have been witnessed a thousand times by now.
IS IT PHIL.
Wait, isn’t berserking that thing you do with the tapered wooden pegs and the bundle of yarn?
oh come on. think about it. if byron was the psychotic sonofabitch that you all seem to want him to be, would there be any interest in his character? as it stands, he’s an enigma. a pacifistic (well, kind of) warrior. it makes him more interesting.
he’s obviously got some issues with his past, and i’m sure he’ll be forced to confront them all in good time.
Maybe he just has to unlock his seventh chakra so he can become a fully realized ava—uhh, berserker
Come now! We obviously don’t want a character, we want a pair of axes with legs. This whole character development and motivations thing never flies in D&D, why would it work here? Character rationalization and reason fly out the window when xp or loot is involved.
to be honest, i’ve always felt that the characters in GA took more of an oldschool fantasy novel genre than a gaming one. part of the reason i enjoy it so much. sure, there are gaming references, but the characters, the world and the plot are deeply rooted in fantasy of a more traditional nature.
I’ll put it more bluntly: If this was just a gaming comic I would have stopped reading it already.
If I ever open a restaurant, “Greater Instant Victory” will be the name of the dish containing a lot of peppers. Oh, and you can order it with ale.
Greater Instant Diarrhea.
Melf’s Acid Puke.
Bigby’s Crushing Stomach Pain.
but there is a cure for all those.
Mordenkainen’s Mystical Maalox
And what about Power Word: Cramp and Abi Dalzim’s Muscle Spasm?
Way back in the day I had a high level Wizard. Just for kicks he created a spell called “Just for S***s and Giggles”. Instant uncontrollable diarrhea and laughter for 1d4 Rounds per caster level.
Okay, maybe I’m misreading the art on this page – but did Supernun just give Frigg a Glasgow smile? (Or cut off her nose?)
I think the nose is fine, but looks like Frig’s gonna have a hard time drinking healing potions for a while.
The nuns are not looking to kill her, just really, really hurt her.
It’s for her own good really.
“A stitch in time”, you might say…
I think that’s just a ‘grrrrrr trying to escape’ face combined with a badly bruised cheek from the earlier beating.
Byron bursts in and hollers at them to stop that!
And then try and figure out a plan to save all their collective behinds!
I personally am a fan of the ’9 second pregnancy’ spell one of our magic users came up with. Works well on medium sized groups…. Though the men don’t seem to survive it too well….
Could end up with 20ish new saviours to send out and convert the populace.
I heart the alt text.
That is all.
Bandit has a nicely shaped bottom…
